3rd Annual Quispamsis PRO Kids Run and Swim
Please join us for the 3rd annual Quispamsis Run and Swim in support of the PRO Kids Foundation. Participate in either the Go Go Gym 1km kids' fun run (500 metre option for the wee ones), 97.3 The Wave 5km Super Series event, or the NEW River and Trail 3km trail run for children under 18! Registration fee includes the run, free swimming at the QPlex for the first 300 registrants (pool opens at 11:00), t-shirts for the first 100 3k/5k participants who register by June 20th, three large inflatable playgrounds compliments of Go Go Gymnastics, a live DJ, great food from local merchants such as Vito’s, Subway, Tim Hortons, and Pete’s Frootique, and more! All this for only $25 for the 5k, $15 for the 3k and $5 for the 500metre/1k.
All proceeds will go to PRO Kids Saint John, a non-profit organization that provides funding for underprivileged youth to participate in sport and recreation activities. This fundraising event is timely, as a recent study reported that Saint John has the highest child poverty rate in Canada, with a staggering 30% of children in Saint John and surrounding areas now living in poverty.
Book early, as there are limited QPlex pool tickets and t-shirts. All event participants are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item in support of KV Food Basket. Come out, support a great cause, and make a difference.
See you at the starting line! If you can't make it, please consider making a donation to this great cause!!
